Investing for the future

The Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) Project provides an interconnection point for industrial development and clean power projects in northwest B.C. By extending the transmission grid to a new part of British Columbia, it's going to play an important role in the economic development of this growing region

Delivering power to a growing region

The Northwest Transmission Line (NTL) is a 344-kilometre, 287-kilovolt transmission line between Skeena Substation (near Terrace) and a new substation near Bob Quinn Lake.

The new line:

  • Provides a reliable supply of clean power to potential industrial developments in the area
  • Provides a secure interconnection point for clean generation projects
  • Facilitates connecting the community of Iskut to the grid, so it doesn't rely on diesel generation
